Another Picture of Dorian Gray 

Wednesday, Jul 17 2013

It's a thirtysomething problem. It's the biological clock you ignore when you're out with Mr. Wrong. It's the conviction that this year, truly, you'll break even selling art. Samantha Giron addresses the condition of the forever young in her new work The Dirt on Dorian Gray. Combining classical and street movement with music, the work tackles the contradictions so common to our tech career, artsy-crunchy, kayaking Californian ways: Take risks or seek security? Two kids and a car or 10 years writing the next Great American Novel? Free love or 401K and tax dependents? Are we idealists, artists, and pioneers, or merely a passel of brats doomed to genetic extinction because none of us will get it together in time to reproduce anyway? Samantha Giron Dance Project poses these questions in an evening of the most youth-oriented of the arts.

July 19-21, 8 p.m., 2013

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
